Moodmusic Releases Anniversary Compilation
- Words: Fred Miketa
Moodmusic is a Berlin-based label that’s shed light on DJ crates across the planet for a decade, responsible for 12”s from tech-house magnates like Sasse, Dirt Crew, and most recently, Spirit Catcher. The 10 Years Compilation, which commemorates, uh, ten years of releases, is a 2-disc piece of Moodmusic’s prolific history. Disc One sees Sasse mixing unreleased tracks from the label’s new crop, including artists like Code-E, Naughty, World of Apples, and others. Disc Two is a collection of classic thumpers from the likes of Star You Star Me, Nick Chacona, and Sasse.
Founded by Klas Lindblad (pictured below), a.k.a. Freestyle Man, in Turku, Finland, the label quickly picked up steam when Linblad jetted over to the dance music epicenter, Ber-motherfucking-lin (as they call it in some circles). Distributed worldwide by WoradandSound, Moodmusic releases have become as valued and accessible as tech-house contemporaries Get Physical and B-Pitch.
The 10 Years Anniversary Compilation is out May 7, 2007 on Moodmusic.
